“SQUAD, ATTENTION!” the drill commander’s voice announces as 10 cadets instantly snap to the position of attention. Eyes forward, chin up, back straight, this is the posture a drill team member must commit themselves during any performance. These young men and women are the elite members of the Drill team, which specializes in D&C. Of course, drill team is not just about staying in step; the team also puts together a visual routine that captures the attention of audiences wherever it might be performed.
It takes practice, dedication to the team, and a desire to want to be the best one can. The work might seem challenging, but the feeling you get when hundreds of fans are cheering for you is an ample enough reward.
